, is right at the center of this storm. so that's the city of sacramento. perhaps 100,000 or more people in serious gemdy. should a levee break and those levees are not up to 200-year standards, should a levee break in that region, people would have less than 20 minutes to find high ground to get out. an impossible situation. so we need serious infrastructure impro. and that's sacramento. the rest of my new district goes further north into marysville and yuba city, along the sacramento river, further north, and along the yuba river. again, communities at high risk. serious infrastructure need to be developed. levees need to be improved. upgrade -- upgraded, enhanced. otherwise citizens are at risk just like they were in staten island. this is our responsibility. this is not only a local responsibility and a state responsibility, this is a national responsibility. this is where we become a national community. looking out for each other. providing the basic infrastructure to protect us. we also have infrastructure that's necessary for commerce. our roads, our highways, our internet systems
own one? you have to put your seat belt on. we're in the middle of a city and if you were in a regular car, you would be hearing the engine hum. in this car you don't hear anything. it sounds like the car is off. it's so quiet! and luxurious. now some people find that disturbing. so the auto companies have now taken to offering you the option -- they're exploring putting this on a number of different electric vehicles where you can pick your sound. so if you wanted to have a sound of a revving engine with real torque, you could opt to put that on your very quiet car. why you would, i don't know. but some people like the sound of power. this car goes about 36, 37 sometimes 40 miles on a charge. it is a battery picture that says i have 35 miles -- 34 miles to go before i'm out. so once i'm done with using all of the electric charge, it then flips over to be a regular gasoline engine. i don't have to worry about what is known as range anxiety, being afraid i'm going to run out of electricity and not be able to
'm thankful that in just a few weeks, the great city of chicago is going to be organizing a welcome home parade to mark the end of the iraq war. a parade on december 15th to thank americans who have fought in iraq and who have fought in afghanistan. i am thankful for the iraq and afghanistan veterans who themselves decided to self-start veteran's cleanup and recovery crews for the coast in new york and new jersey when hurricane sandy hit. i'm thankful there is still an american automobile industry, when it was not at all clear just a few years ago that that would be true. i'm thankful that the american automobile industry not only exists, but it is kicking butt. i am thankful for that. i'm thankful that when my pal, xeni jardin got diagnosed with breast cancer this year, xeni decided to go public with it in a way that has led millions of people to look at cancer differently and more critically, in a way that is uncompromisingly unpatronizing and very smart. like everything she does. i'm thankful for xeni. i'm thankful for the reporter name terry camp at the local abc affiliate in flint,
into the fall. the question is on if america will rise up and rushed to this city and announced that enough is enough. although the voices of the minority should be heard, they have a right under this flag that they will not control this nation in the most distasteful way that they have done to undermine those that cannot speak for themselves. that is what we are facing today and some have some very tough decisions to make. >> we have to go vote, so maybe we can catch up a little bit later. we have not put the caucus to a person, but we have most of them very dissatisfied and many are going to be voting no. >> are you prepared to have partial responsibility? you are willing to accept that? >> the answer is a definitive no. the reason is because all of us voted for a clean debt ceiling, and 18 times, reagan got a clean vote. this is the normal course of congress, we are all prepared to do it now. what drove us to this point? it is beyond dispute, the decoupling of the debt ceiling in debt reduction has gotten us to this place. we have been fighting for the economy. we have one more and then
citi group so that was a good one. also yahoo! i noted this morning was on the goldman sachs conviction by list. that is exactly what we are seeing. tech names are on the move. tracy: the early christmas gift. do your the clock ticking? the looming fiscal clough ticking away. 35 days away unless they can hammer out an agreement. will that put a damper on holiday shopping? look at the winners and losers. e-bay was up but apple is up 3% even dell computer said. we will be right back. can i help you? i heard you guys can ship ground for less than the ups store. that's right. i've learned the only way to get a holiday deal is to camp out. you know we've been open all night. is this a trick to get my spot?

and help in reducing portability. human well-being, intercultural interaction and sustainable cities. all of these things are embracing the entire spectrum of discipline. so it is shortsighted to the humanities. >> i guess i have to say that this is a particularly enlightening panel here. but when you look at what is going on at many public universities, particularly public regional universities, maybe not flagships, but institution after institution that announces that we are going to be an international university, but then they eliminate half of their offerings. and we will have room for the occasional philosopher and some of these projects, but we just don't see it. we get all the strategic plans and you don't see them included. we have also touched on the roles of the faculty. tenure adjunct and then there is that issue with some of you touched on your events questions how do you manage the university to encourage talent and also attract new talent. what you see as the personnel policy related to this that need bolstering are changing? >> i think it starts with how you define your bu
clout. and political sway of some of the eu's institutions. finally, all while parts of new york city are still recovering from hurricane sandy, tradition is being maintained as the macy's thanksgiving day parade stops off in manhattan. and for many large retailers from the traditional black friday is a starting later today. some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> you career officers, you disch -- changed this army. go and find your soldiers. do not find them in the villages and towns of america. and we did that. and over about five or six years recruited an absolutely splendid force of young men and women more willing to serve their country as volunteers, and they had the same tradition, the same culture, the same loyalty and dedication as any other generation of americans. and they proved themselves in the gulf war, the panama invasion. it proved themselves in the past 10 years and iraq and afghanistan. but the theme we have to keep in mind is something that president lincoln said. to care for those who are born to battle. to care. that means never forget that they are carr
going over the fiscal clef. host: david from union city. good morning. are you with us? ok. dave is turning into the tv rather than the phone call. we will look at the peace study. -- pew study. let's go to marie in alabama, a a democrat. good morning. caller: good morning. can you hear me? i think that the states are already represented through their congresspersons. we do not need to have double representation. host: ok. let's go to springfield, georgia on the independent line. caller: good morning. my comment is there are a number of states that are not paying enough to the federal government. they get a lot more money back. to have these states have more input into the crisis, i think it would be a major mistake. the election has been decided already. obama 1. his referendum should be, it just that, what ever he wants. the states are complaining. they're not paying enough to the federal government. you have a lot of other states that are more liberal that are supporting people. host: agusta, georgia. caller: actually, the people have spoken. they have spoken because they reel
and the postal service and city governments and everybody else down the line and our military. that is not american at all. host: are you a retired postal caller: worker yes, i am. i retired in 2004. host: what kind of pension or retire benham -- retirement benefits you have? caller: they offset my benefits for social security. they take out for my insurance that i have. health insurance, blue cross/blue shield and end up with $300 per month the. is pretty outrageous, isn't it, considering they counted me as having 23 years in there. i was a postmaster when i became legally blind. that is beside the point. you don't get rich off the retirement unless you have been there for a lot of years. host: so after 23 years, what do you get in social security? do they take out for that? caller: s, when you first retire, they are mandated by law -- mr. reagan and his troops, when they read it so security in 1983-1986, they came up with federal employees retirement system. they were wanting to eliminate several services altogether. that was because of the benefits. if you have $1,000 so se
a member of the frisco city council. although he was elected to council more than 10 months ago, his seat has frequently been empty but for a good reason. shortly after taking office, captain nelson got notice from the united states reserve and was deployed to afghanistan. he was on the nato military base with the 980th engineer battalion. as the unit's civil engineer he oversaw construction projects from roads to water to intelligence. while in afghanistan captain nelson carried a copy of the united states constitution everywhere he went. his reason was, quoting here, you don't always have to agree with the politics of the day but truly by the grace of god we were born in america and if you have been to enough places in the world you know how lucky we really are and how wonderful the place we live. while captain nelson was not able to be at a council meeting, he was not forgotten. he is home now and he said i'll do my best to make up the time i was gone. on november 8 he returned back to texas to his wife and three children. mr. speaker, i'm proud to recognize the service of a councilman

[laughter] mali and congo, i set a lot about our common commitment, and where the values are challenged, wherever terrorism and terrorist groups try to destroy countries, to bring countries to the state of a failed state, as a basis for terrorist groups to export their terrorism, we must act. somalia is a symbol. what is happening in mali is a direct result of the libyan revolution. it is now distributed in the whole region. not only mali. a at a meeting with the king of morocco to tell me that for his country this is one of the biggest risks. this is not only a local conflict. concerning congo, this is an honest risk for the country, the split of the country. congo is another real, bigger challenge. we are willing buyers to accept what is going on, and if they are able to solve the problem, i think we should support
